A pair of house finches pull sunflower seeds through the mesh. A new year has begun for us; but, for them it is still a matter of survival. Hopefully, my feeder provides them with needed resources as winter comes on strong.
Time keeps on ticking
Means nothing to my finches
Everyday’s the same

Today at D’Verse Poets Pub, Bjorn asked us to write a Haibun that refers to the new decade starting and new beginnings.

Buying time will be the most valuable commodity of the next generation . With hectic work schedules, activities, children, family, and friends our time is all accounted for. Any time we can buy some time for ourselves, we will spend the extra money. We have pizza delivery, pharmacy delivery, dry cleaning delivery, fast food, and on-line shopping. Our local grocery store now has curb service and food cooked for dinner! We fill our lives with so much that there is no time left just for me. Wouldn’t it be nice if we did not have to think about or worry about time? Here is a fantasy poem dreaming about what that might be like.
Imagine there’s no such thing as time
No clocks to tick not alarms to chime
How different life would be
Age lost in a theory of relativity
Simply living till we die
No numbers to stress us out
No big three-o or the big 4-o
Never late never on time just hi and bye
What a laid back world that would be
One less stress for the OCD’s
Timeless living takes all as it comes
No looking forward no looking back
Sounds almost like eternity
